So here is the news.
I will not longer be teaching Portrait in Escondido and Art History in Ramona. Both have been cut for budget reasons...but the good news
I will be the Instructor for Sculpture I and II, Mixed Media Sculpture on Palomars main campus and I would love to see some of you there!
This is a 3.0 unit class.
I will still be teaching the "Mixed Media Painting Intensive" in Ramona. And I have a great group of fun artist in this class. Come join us.
If you think these programs are important make sure to enroll in one of the Community Education (noncredit) classes this spring.

It's sometimes, as if I'm getting to know someone.
I think this is a room not just one painting. Well I know it's more than one anyhow...it's left behind things.
It's trading cards. I'll give you this if you give me that.
Jose and Brian isnt childhood kind of a no-mans land?
Everybody wants it, while nobody claims it.
It seems to me that we value the idea of children far more then children.
Maybe it's more about making and storing memories.
We like it in memory, so safe and warm.
But it's late and I'm just going on.

After a pretty intense nightmare and the movie Hound-dog...I got to thinking.
It's a long way from thought out and is not a completely new vein for me, but...
Who and what are the Sirens of Adulthood. What did we leave at the altar of childhood?
What are the costs of coming into your own body in a society that tends to always view anything sensual as sexual advance. Were personal desire is transfered to the object of the desire even before the object has become aware of an another.
What did you give up too easily to the siren call of adulthood?

Instead of dealing with archetypical Personas in this new series, I’m working from my own relatives, my nieces and nephews. I’m from a large California Liberal Catholic family of eight who are now on the second generation of children. These are the children of my bothers and sisters children.
Arianna is the first finished painting in this series. Fifteen possibilities are waiting in the wings. Whether they will all come with an attribute, I don’t know. I only know Arianna came with an owl.
While grand scale has played a part in my previous infant paintings, I have reduced the size of these paintings simply because I needed to feel that they could all be lined up together down a long family hall.

With five rattles done and a few more underconstruction, i'm starting to get clearer on a few things. They need special boxes, special homes to rest in and creation myths and stories to be told over and about them. So if something comes to anyone, if they tell you something that they have not told me yet, feel free to pass it on.
